2018 trend: seventies chic

Move over mid-century modern – if the autumn/winter catwalks and trend forecasters are right, there’ll be a definite seventies vibe to our interiors in 2018. Designers such as Jonathan Adler have long championed the look but it seems it’s going mainstream; according to Pinterest, macramé wall hangings, chunky knitted throws and house plants are among the most-pinned items this month. 

When it comes to home decor, the key is to take the best of 1970s design – such as patterned ceramics, glossy woods, and shaggy textures such as faux fur – and update them by setting them against a more modern, neutral colour palette. Take a look at our Athena range of luxurious shagpile carpet; it comes in eight shades that perfectly complement the retro look, and combines gorgeous looks with supremely low maintenance (it’s made from Easy Clean fibre and is backed with an impressive 20-year stain warranty).

Want to go bolder? Our Glendevon range includes an on-trend graphic Hexagon pattern in six colourways, from dramatic Black Raven to Coziness Beige, which would add a hint of seventies cool to any room. Or opt for a splash of colour with Alderley Edge shaggy Satin Soft carpet in Teal or Powder Pink, and keep the rest of the furnishings and accessories neutral.

While compiling this blog, we found a few seventies-inspired pieces that we’re loving here at Crown Floors, and there’s plenty out there for you to discover too. We just have to hope candlewick bedspreads don’t make a comeback…
